Crunchyroll Surpasses 3 Million Subscribers

Crunchyroll announced that it has garnered more than three million subscribers and over 70 million registered users. The service previously announced that it had reached more than two million subscribers in October 2018 and more than one million subscribers in February 2017.

Crunchyroll also revealed the top viewed anime series (quantified by views per subscriber; listed in alphabetical order) in the U.S. during its second quarter this year (April-June 2020):

  • Black Clover
  • Boruto: Naruto Next Generations
  • Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma
  • Haikyu!!
  • Hunter x Hunter
  • JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure
  • Boku no Hero Academia
  • Naruto Shippūden
  • One Piece
  • Tower of God

The website launched in 2007 as a streaming service offering anime titles without authorization, but in 2008 it secured US$4.05 million in its first-round funding from Venrock and began licensing titles for streaming.

Crunchyroll and Viz Media Europe closed the deal for Crunchyroll to become the majority owner of Viz Media Europe Group last December. The companies announced the agreement in September 2019.
